Common Crossbill male - Loxia curvirostra

I have one in my lens, the male Crossbill. 
Photographed Church Lane, Parkend, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, GB.
It was a long way, but, I had to show you.

  3. Hi Richard
    There was a couple of birers again, but, I still get it right, it had the best of spots, never minds.

  6. Bob - I didn't know about crossbills until I came to Montana. In the fall, we had crowds of them eating small bugs/seeds on the ground around our house. I am now a big fan!
